An international student (to Harvard) is a student that does not have US citizenship or permanent US residency.
Soj is right Harvard should already know you are international. If you wanted to use this to your advantage it should have been explored in a diversity statement.
In your LOCI/why harvard, if being international somehow significantly affected your decision to apply to harvard you can mention it. But I don't know how it would.
I have never actually read a 'Why Harvard" that would be interesting. I think mine would go like this:
"Why Harvard? Is that a trick question...just let me in"
